Parvo Treatment

Pacific Veterinary Hospital - Parvo Treatment

Parvovirus, a highly contagious and potentially life-threatening disease, primarily affects dogs, particularly puppies. We offer comprehensive treatment services to address Parvovirus infections in dogs and provide supportive care to improve their chances of recovery.

Treatment typically involves hospitalization for intensive care, as Parvovirus can cause severe dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, and damage to the gastrointestinal tract. Our veterinarians administer intravenous fluids to correct dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities, as well as medications to control vomiting and diarrhea.

In addition to supportive care, we may administer antiviral medications or immune-modulating drugs to help fight the virus and boost the dog’s immune response. Antibiotics may also be prescribed to prevent secondary bacterial infections, which can occur due to the weakened immune system.

Nutritional support is crucial during Parvovirus treatment, as affected dogs often have reduced appetite and may struggle to maintain their body weight. We can provide intravenous or syringe feeding to ensure adequate nutrition and calorie intake during the recovery process.

Throughout treatment, we monitor the dog’s condition closely and assess hydration status, vital signs, and response to treatment. Adjustments to the treatment plan will be made based on the dog’s individual needs and progress.

In cases where Parvovirus infection is severe or complications arise, intensive care measures such as blood transfusions or plasma infusions may be necessary to support the dog’s recovery.

Parvovirus is a life-threatening disease and an early diagnose and start of veterinary treatment is crucial for improving outcomes and reducing the severity of the disease.
